Sweet Autumn


Even though it can be somewhat weedy, I can't help but love sweet autumn clematis. Starting from ground level, it climbs up a fence or trellis during the spring and summer and then explodes in bloom in September. The yard is filled with it's sweet fragrance and pretty flowers. It does reseed easily and I find it growing all over the place.I just keep ripping it out where I don't want it and adding where I do!




I wish you all could smell this!


And here is another sweet thing!

Your garden is gorgeous and the clematis is wonderful. I didn't realize they were scented! That last little sprout is the cutest one of all! xo

That looks beautiful and yes I could almost smell it. Thanks for sharing your experience with cancer, it sure is comforting to hear success stories. That little sweetheart in the pool is yummy! Hugs, Diane
